When you say, "backed up", do you mean they run routine backups of your system, or do you have the files stored on their server, independent of your own system?
That's the big thing I keep running into with a lot of these places; when I talk to them, they make it sound as though they only do system backups, not offline data storage.
Somewhere in between the questions I'm asking, and the answers I'm getting from these places, there might be some confusion over terminologies or something, perhaps.

I have 24tb backed up to Hightail.  $16 a month and I share any file with any person in seconds.

Is there a bandwidth limit on hightail for when you share?

Nope.  I use it too.

Wow, I use the same stuff the Spy uses.  Amazing.  Great minds think alike. 

Next thing you'll tell me is that you like Schoeps, Eric Clapton, and BBQ.

I have 19TBs backed up with BackBlaze.  It seems to be good for backups and storage, but not for sharing.  But my main goal was simply to have unlimited backups for a reasonable price (I'm paying $60/yr).

I thought they charged $0.005/GB/Month?  I have looked at B2 which would be over $200/month for me.  No thanks.  It's even more expensive to pull data back down.  They also do not allow mapped drives or NAS connections although I think FreeNAS (my OS) has a feature that defeats it.

It's a flat fee for unlimited backup:  $6/mth --- $60/yr --- $110 for two years.

Umm... help a brother out here, please....?  A lot of this conversation seems to be related to "backing up" data, which isn't exactly the same thing as storing 20+ TB on a dedicated server.

Like I tried to say earlier, I've been talking to reps from some of the companies, and they keep making a clear distinction between providing "backups", which it seems most of these places do provide, and "offline data storage", which it seems most of them either don't provide, or only offer for much smaller amounts of data, such as "5TB is the maximum storage space we offer", etc.

When you say, "backed up", do you mean they run routine backups of your system, or do you have the files stored on their server, independent of your own system?

Define the terms.

Backup to me means software + cloud storage. To my knowledge, there are no economical and practical options for the 15tb range.

Cloud Storage to me means storage in the cloud which can be mere storage of a bunch of files or one can store an entire data set in the cloud. That can act as a backup but it has to be manually uploaded.  Hightail has a 25gb per file limit per individual upload and no limit to the total amount of uploaded files.

Just a quick note - Backblaze allows files over 25 GB. This probably isn’t all that important to many here, but since the Panasonic  ZS100 camera’s recording time limit can be hacked to allow unlimited recording, I regularly film shows and have single video files over 50 GB.

Exactly. Our definitions are the same.

Personally, I have no need for backups.

I *do* have a need for cloud storage, but a lot more than the limit most places seem to offer.

Possibly I connected with the wrong person at hightail? The response I received from indicated that my need for cloud storage wasn't exactly what they were designed for.

Did you sign up with their "Pro" plan? That's what looked right for my needs. but their response indicated otherwise....??

Do you  compress the files before backup?  When you zip the files how much do they compress?

I don't do anything with the files; except of course, load them onto a hard drive.  So no compression on the user end.  Basically, Backblaze just runs in the background and backs everything up.

In a couple of trials I have made so far after I signed up for a Guite account.

I created a couple of backup scripts from my FreeNAS server to GDrive but it will ONLY go into "My Drive" shared folders which counts against my quota.  There is currently 9.2TB there. (Video & FLAC)

Anything that I drag and drop into "Shared Drive" folders (unshared) does not show up in my quota.

One thing that I have yet to try is to add users to the Shared Drive folders to see if I can see them populate through the backup API. 

I have yet to see a bill for anything from Google.

Yes it is their pro plan.  Unlimited storage, upload limit of 25 gigs per file.  About $16 a months

Some of my multi-track recordings and the accompanying mix files easily reach 50gb, so I have to break down the fileset to something like TracksRaw01-12, Tracks Raw 13-24, Mix Tracks 01-12, etc.  You get the general idea.  I then zip the files into a single file and upload that. 

I have onsite and offsite backups, so these are really for the house burned down and I've lost all my tapes storage.  Cheap insurance for me. 

The other thing I did was zip every show I've recorded and the split files, so I can send them to anyone via email with a link.  It takes about 30 seconds to find the link and email it, so it is super convenient for me.

50GBs is a shit ton of audio.  Just curious - how many tracks are in these multi-track recordings?

16 to 24 tracks, maybe even up to 30 if I have audience and/or ALD feeds or wireless mikes.
